About this listing
This charming villa with large pool,only five minutes from the lazy market town of Draguignan, surrounded by lovely little villages and many dozens of vineyards, is between the Mediterranean beaches and the spectacular Verdon Canyon and its lake.
If it's peace and quiet your looking for, this is the place. Secluded with no over-looking neighbours, this comfortable summer home is set in 6000 2m of woodland. The pool (5m x 8m) is above ground in teek surounded by shaded areas to relax in. A large kitchen dining area, gives onto terraces and garden. Three bedrooms, a bathroom containing bath, shower, cubical and double washbasin and separate toilette. Bed linen , bathroom and pool towels are provided.
Our guests will have access to the pool, garden, barbecue and terraces.
The pool and the garden are totally private .
There is plenty of parking space for several cars.
Interaction with guests
A seperate basement-flat with a totally private entrance and parking area is rented on a yearly basis.
There is a caravan at the other end of the property which I sometimes stay in for a night between rentings but otherwise is not used.
Although the house is only five minutes from the busy market town of Draguignan and very close to the coast, it is completly off the beaten track in it's own special part of paradise. You can walk out the back door and go for long walks up in the hills, rarely meeting anybody.
You will need a car to get around. However the TGV train station is fifteen minutes away and Nice airport less than an hour.
Other things to note
Animals are welcome but bear in mind that although there is no through road on or near the property the land is not completly fenced in so if you have a pet that wanders it would not suit.
I've lived here for many years and know the area very well. I of course speak French which could always be useful to you, if necessary. I have a seperate studio flat which is sometimes occupied in the summer months but never more than every other week.
I'm sure you will treat the house as your own and love it as much as I do.
The rental is for a minimum of three days. Special rates for a one week stay.
I will leave you all you need for breakfast for the first day. However after that you will need your car to go either to town or the village to buy fresh bread and croissants. Smoking is not acceptable in the house. Outside you can smoke being very carreful when putting cigarettes out.
I'm a semi-retired English teacher living in the hills above Draguignan in the South of France.I only teach adults these days which I really enjoy.
I'm Australian but have lived in France for many years now. I have two sons who also live in the south these days allthough they both travel a lot. I also love to travel of course. My favourite destinations are Australia naturally but also south east Asia. My last trip was to Srilanka which I absolutely adored.
I live alone with my many animals. I have a wonderful dog who I could not live without.
I love reading, going for walks and hikes in the hills. I also go running with my dogs and her friends (other dogs) in the surounding woods. I love the sea and swimming of course.
My life moto would be to enjoy each and every moment while we can.
As a guest I would be more than careful and respect your things. I know whart it is like when I rent my house out.
There are many other things but that will do for now
My family and friends come to visit me very often and I also go to them. In summer I often rent my house as well and will certainly use this site next time.
